Lyrics from a traditional lullaby
Listen to the Music!
This week, Lisa Redfern adds a jaunty tone to the well-known lullaby Hush Little Baby. Lisa’s version of this song is sung in her authentic folk style and features gorgeous vocal harmonies for the second half of the song. It is from her album Sing Me Goodnight, a deeply personal collection of 13 tender lullabies for all ages. The CD was the Winner of the Parents’ Choice Silver Honor and the NAPPA Gold. It’s dedicated to parents and children everywhere, especially those creating families through adoption. Lisa’s soothing, clear voice comforts the listener through beautiful lullabies with simple acoustic arrangements. Two of the songs are recent originals about adoption, two others were written by Lisa, two are songs from a fellow songwriter, and the rest are traditional tunes.
